Kansas City, it is again time to get ready for the Flu Season! Although, it is not possible to predict what type of Flu season we will have, we do know the Flu spreads every year with the timing, severity, and length of the season varying from year to year. The CDC recommends “Take 3” actions to fight the Flu. Dr. Bernabe, a Board Certified Allergist, will review them below for our Allergy & Asthma Care, PA family. The 3 best ways are as follows: 1. Take time to get a flu vaccine which applies to everyone 6 months of age or older. 2. Take everyday preventative actions to stop the spread of germs such as frequent washing of hands with soap and water or use an alcohol- based hand rub. 3. Take flu antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them because they can make illness milder and shorten the time you are sick. Allergy & Asthma Care, PA will have Flu shots available soon and remember for the best allergy and asthma care, a Board Certified Allergist can provide that.
